Ferris's new evolution of mowing haha.....

I think its funny that the new evolution of Ferris is a complete ripoff of 2 mowers that have allready been around for 10 years

The outfront is a snapper, Owned by Ferris. And will be sold in Sears im sure.

I don't see how this is going to increase mowing productivity any. I think before you call it an EVOLUTION you need to actuauly make something better then what has allready been done.

Wright can't do much about it, their patent ran out this year on much of the designs (which they held for the past ten years)

While the out-front unit is a a snapper, It still looks pretty bad asz to me. Not that if i was in need of an out front I would buy it anyway. I agree that the stand-on hybrid does resemble a sentar, it doesn't mean Ferris infringed on any patents. I guess the question is: "But does it work tree-beck?"

Ferris doesn't own Snapper, Briggs owns them both along with Simplicity.

this mower may be very good from Ferris (stander version) I will have to check it out. But with all first runs come bugs, so in the meantime, I will keep buying my Ferris Z turns and walk behinds, and Wright products

i heard through the grapevine as of now the new ferris mower will NOT be at the GIE expo. But the grapevine also said that ferris is good at making last minute decisions. So he said that no one will know really until the last few days leading up to the GIE expo.
